Gaffer upbeat

19 September 2013

David Weir remains convinced that one win can change United's League One fortunes.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's clash with in-form Preston North End at Bramall Lane, the United chief believes three points against Simon Grayson's Lilywhites could ignite the Blades campaign.

Weir remarked: "Nobody likes losing and we have lost too many this season, so the current situation is something that needs addressing quickly.

"We have had a lot of disappointments recently but the only way we can answer our critics is to work hard during the week and look to put things in our next fixture.

"Whether you are winning consistently or on a losing run you are always learning about yourself and your team and I am always open to advice from people around me.

"We aren't going to panic about our current plight though, it wouldn't be beneficial to over analyse things because I have said for a while that I believe we are on the right track and I maintain that opinion."

He added: "The nature of losing games is that everyone becomes disappointed and morale dips, but you have to get back to work and the next game then becomes our focus.

"I remain confident in the squad, we have some good players and strong characters, given time we will address this situation and then kick on, that is the belief inside the dressing room.

"I am completely focused on my job and bringing success to this great football club, one win could totally things around and we must remember it is still very early days in a 46-game season."
